About The Automatic

The Automatic

Looking back through the Cambridge restaurant and bar family tree, there are numerous connections between two dearly departed spots: B-Side Lounge, which closed at the end of 2008, and East Coast Grill, which changed ownership a few years ago...Now, enter a new node on the tree: in the fall of 2016, East Coast Grill founder Chris Schlesinger and B-Side Lounge alum Dave Cagle have teamed up to open The Automatic.
